We believe our Sixth Form provides a caring environment where courtesy and co-operation create a stable atmosphere in which students can thrive. We endeavour to create a Sixth Form environment where individuals aspire to achieve the highest academic standards of which they are capable. Students have greater responsibility for their own studies, and we encourage independence whilst ensuring individual talents and leadership qualities are developed. A commitment to study and a willingness to make a positive contribution to the life of the school will ensure a rich and fulfilling Sixth Form experience.
Sixth Form students are involved in running clubs, helping younger students with their studies and coaching teams. There are opportunities for students to become Senior Officials, Subject Prefects, Form Prefects and take responsibility for Charities, Cultural Issues, Green Council, Sixth Form Liaison as well as Publicity. To become a member of the Sixth Form is to take a very important step. Students are faced with a wide array of choice and new freedoms.
Staff at Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend are highly qualified and dedicated to using their expertise to swiftly engage and motivate students in their chosen courses of study. There is an extensive range of courses on offer within the school. Our Sixth Form curriculum has been developed to maximise choice and to equip students with the qualifications and skills they need to access the next stage of their development, be it Higher/Further Education or employment with training.
We welcome students, both girls and boys from other schools and offer an induction programme that ensures students joining our school feel secure and confident about Sixth Form life at Mayfield Grammar School, Gravesend.
